PowerGen was founded in 2011 with the vision of making clean, renewable energy accessible to more people in Africa, a continent in which 600m people still lack access to energy.

Today, we have offices in 4 countries, hundreds of projects deployed, and tens of thousands of people benefitting from our energy services everyday.

Our goal is to connect millions of people for the first time

Working with our valued partners, our mission is to connect millions of people to power for the first time while building the clean energy system of the future in Africa.

We are making progress towards our goal due to the tireless effort and commitment of our team, which comes from a broad range of backgrounds and is united by our common purpose and values.
